Poor ken. Cry me a river. Get over it. This is chaff.

I like you trying to single me out of everybody on the side not named Jerry. Shame for you that I came in well after others had already started. But keep up your crusade.

"Geez, a Twinkie conversation spiraled out of control to this."

Any conversation that starts with Twinkies is already out of control

And Lemon Pie, 490 calories for a buck and 220 of them from fat. Awesome.


Ken,

Sounds like a nice mid morning snack on my trips ;-)

It's hard to tell without the actual details, isn't it? I I mean sure we can point the finger at the bakers union, but without knowing what kind of concessions were being asked, it's hard to tell which party was being unreasonable. Maybe management was asking too much. Maybe the union was refusing a reasonable offer. We don't know for sure. Fox would lead you to believe the unions were being greedy. I'm skeptical until number come to light, if they ever do.

Some companies are dead long before they know it. If Hostess couldn't keep their employees happy, it was probably time for them to close shop.

Which leads me to question why Twinkies are legal and marijuana is not. ;0)

If marijuana use being legal led to more use, then it seems like there'de be more Twinkie eating...

Maybe this will lead to Twinkies being resurected
